Syzygium anisatum, with common names ringwood and aniseed tree, is a rare Australian rainforest tree with an aromatic leaf that has an essential oil profile comparable to true aniseed.
The leaf from cultivated plantations is used as a bush-food spice and distilled for the essential oil, and is known in the trade as aniseed myrtle or anise myrtle.
The ringwood tree has a dense crown and grows up to 45 metres tall. The leaves are 6–12 cm long with prominently undulate margins and rich aniseed aroma when crushed.
Flowers are white and sweetly scented, borne in panicles. The fruit are dry papery capsules around 5 mm long and are white in appearance.
Ringwood’s natural distribution in the wild is restricted to the Nambucca and Bellinger Valleys in the subtropics of New South Wales, Australia.
Used as a flavouring spice and herbal tea ingredient. Although previously known, it was first sold in the early 1990s as a bushfood spice, and in the mid 1990s cultivated in plantations to meet demand.
The essential oil of S. anisatum contains anethole and methyl chavicol, imparting licorice and aniseed flavours respectively.
‘Aniseed myrtle’ is the name originally coined to specifically describe high-quality selections of the trans-anethole chemotype (90%+) – generally recognized as safe for flavouring. These selections are propagated from cutting for consistent essential oil quality. The aniseed myrtle selections are also low in methyl chavicol and cis-anethole (less than 0.1%).
Research indicates that aniseed myrtle oil has antimicrobial activity, including on the pathogenic yeast Candida albicans.
It has similar properties to aniseed, fennel and basil essential oil.
The scent of anise myrtle will help to reawaken your imagination and bring your vision into manifestation to enable you to move forward in life.
Calming, soothing, uplifting, relaxing, meditative.
It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of depression, anxiety, and insomnia, and is commonly used to combat feelings of restlessness and misdirection.
